1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / ridiculously stupid question, I'm sure. on: November 27, 2007 07:27:58 PM
OK, so I'm attempting my first crochet project (the garden scarf from Debbie Stroller's book) and am so confused.

so, i just chained 10 and joined in the round (and marveled about how cool the join was). Now, I have to work 24 sc in ring. If there is only 10 stitches in the chain, how am i supposed to do 24 sc's?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / better sweater and my the amazing technicolor dreamskirt. on: August 10, 2007 10:54:17 PM
So, this shawl is from the knitty gritty episode with Stefanie Japel. I just kept knitting, so it became less of a boob- holder, more of a cardigan. I believe it's called the Spencer jacket in her book.

and the back

And the skirt. It was originally supposed to be a tanktop, so the hips are designed for my bust. Luckily, I am quite literally an hourglass and the measurements are the exact same, so it works.

4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / First crochet project! on: June 05, 2007 03:02:25 PM
So, I really want to make the lady like lace gloves. Would you recommend them to a beginner? (I knit, if that helps)
Also, I persevere and would work through any problems with crochet, but afraid I might make a rookie mistake.
Thanks bunches!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hatty hatty, joy joy. on: May 08, 2007 06:15:19 PM
Hi, hi. I'm a noob to the extreme. And I made a hat! further details on the blog, so visit if you wish.

That's the front, when it looks at least somewhat ok. And then you turn around to the back and it becomes the mushroom hat!!!<br>

Which does not flatter my already problematic face!
I'll try chain stich as a cast-on next time!

Any advice?
